Trump’s Military Response To Baghdad Embassy Attack Is The “Anti-Benghazi”

(Tea Party PAC) – In response to the siege on the US Embassy in Baghdad on Tuesday at the hands of 6,000 Iran-backed Shiite militiamen, 750 US Army paratroopers were deployed to Kuwait.

They may soon be joined by the 4,000 soldiers from the Army’s 82nd Airborne Deployment-Ready Brigade who defense officials told Fox News have been put on notice for imminent deployment.

Thankfully, while the militiamen in Tuesday’s attack set fire to the compound and chanted “death to America,” thanks to the aid of 100 Marines who defended the facility, there were no American casualties.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper said that the deployment is a cautionary step to protect Americans in the region.

“I have authorized the deployment of an infantry battalion from the Immediate Response Force (IRF) of the 82nd Airborne Division to the U.S. Central Command area of operations in response to recent events in Iraq.

Approximately 750 soldiers will deploy to the region immediately, and additional forces from the IRF are prepared to deploy over the next several days.

This deployment is an appropriate and precautionary action taken in response to increased threat levels against U.S. personnel and facilities, such as we witnessed in Baghdad today. The United States will protect our people and interests anywhere they are found around the world.”

The Trump administration is responding exactly how we’d expect an administration who has vowed to defend American interests at all costs to behave.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the embassy attack an act of “state-sponsored terrorism,” while President Donald Trump promised to hold the Iranian government “fully responsible.”

The president grabbed a moment to speak with reporters hours after the attack outside the annual New Year’s Eve party at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach. He commended the brave US Marines who secured the embassy in the midst of the attack.

Trump was clear that this incident would not be another Benghazi, making a direct reference to the abysmal failures of the Obama administration to do anything to help US personnel in the embassy attack in Libya in 2012.

This attack left the blood of four Americans, including US Ambassador Chris Stevens, on the hands of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and then-President Barack Obama.

“The Marines came in. We had some great warriors come in. They did a fantastic job. They were there instantaneously, as soon as we heard [about the embassy attack]. They came immediately. This will not be another Benghazi. Benghazi never should have happened. This will never, ever be a Benghazi. As soon as we saw there was a potential for a problem, they got in,” POTUS stated.

In a New Year’s Eve tweet, President Trump promised to hold Iran responsible for their actions.

Trump tweeted: “Iran will be held fully responsible for lives lost, or damage incurred, at any of our facilities. They will pay a very BIG PRICE! This is not a Warning, it is a Threat. Happy New Year!”

  1. I am so sick of all the BS speed by idiots like Hogandda and al sharpton jr keep trying push. That whole debacle in Benghazi was caused by Hillary Clinton’s refusal to listen to the SF PEOPLE AND DSS PEOPLE IN BENGHAZI TO HARDEN THE CONSULATE THERE AND THEN TO INSIST THAT THE AMBASSADOR BE THERE. THEN OBAMA BACKED UP HER DECISION! CRIMINAL!!! The “STAND DOWN ORDER” was sent and the Military had to obey this order…that’s how it works wither we who are at the tip of the spear like it or not!!! The request or alert started a chain of action in place for emergency response is automatic and can only be stopped by…get ready for it…NATIONAL COMMAND AUTHORITY (that’s the president for you libratards). In this case (and I believe in every country that we have an Embassy) the outside area control is the responsibility of the host country. The interior I believe is the responsibility of the Marines and DSS. The Marines and DSS DID THEIR JOBS SUPERBLY. The Iraqis did not. President Trump and our military did their jobs…you can ask the Iranians and their proxies about that. Soleimani and his little Iraqi militia leader would give testimony to that also…if vapor could speak!

  2. God Bless our President, and all our brave warriors. Obama should be tried for treason and aiding the enemy. Obama is the worst president, most anti-American, most anti-Christian, and most anti-military president this nation has ever had!

    God Bless you President Trump!!!

  3. What that POS Kenyan “mooslim” and the clinton “witch” did not do….. Cost 4 American lives + the US Ambassador!! That is comparable to treachery and Odummer should have been **IMPEACHED**!!

  4. Unwarranted actions against our Embassy are disgusting and worrying. Glad the USA is taking action. Hoping they are productive.

  5. Hogandda…. Call it anything you want , but in the eyes of Joe 6 pack the response was there. It was sadly lacking in the Benghazi attack.
    I also saw the pathetic new clips blaming a stupid Video that followed.
    Trump 2020,
    Joe 6 pack

  6. It is time to show some action against Iran. Talk is cheap. Over passed months Iran has performed several attacks, but no actions have been taken.

  7. New “Sheriff in town and his name is President Trump and not anti-President Obama, who ducked and ran on Benghazi along with Hillary Clinton”!!! We have a strong America again, period”!!!!

  8. Exactly the way a president should respond. President Trump values American lives.
    His response is a 180 from the previous administration.
    Shame on Clinton and Obama for sitting back and watching it happen. ( “At this point what does it matter?” )

  9. I. M . H. O. It’s only the nauseating politically correct stench that permeates our atmosphere from coast to coast that permits HILARY and B.H.O. to still draw a breath after their spineless traitorous Benghazi performance

  10. You don’t tell the truth much do you. First the US Diplomatic compound in Benghazi was not an Embassy and was not fortified as an Embassy would be. Second, the Embassy in Baghdad was a 104 acre compound housing 1000’s of troops, staff, contractors etc. It should have been under heavy security protection at all times. I wonder how they “smashed their way into the embassy compound and set fire to a reception area” Third, we have troops stationed in and close to the Embassy in Baghdad. Fourth – “Despite persistent accusations against President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Susan Rice, ten (Benghazi) investigations — six by Republican-controlled congressional committees — did not find that they or any other high-ranking Obama administration officials had acted improperly”

    To try and equate the two incidents (Benghazi and the Embassy attack in Baghdad) is disingenuous at best and at worst just lying.

    • Hogganda – I’m glad there is at least one rational and objective commentator on this site. The rest of these posts are nothing but ignorant children that don’t give a damn about the facts.

    • Oh, and I guess the ambassador was not an ambassador either. And Obozo and Shrillery didn’t sit around in their “situation room” drinking lattes during the 8 hours those people could have been rescued from being sodomized, dragged about, and burned. And then “nobody” gave the “stand down” order that multiple strike units received as they were on the tarmac, with gunships, and carriers ready to deploy in a rescue mission. And then, some poor rube who put together a half-assed, anti-Muslim video wasn’t arrested and is now serving time as the scapegoat for Obozo administration fecklessness, and corruption. And above all, the ambassador, who was going to come out as Obozo’s back-door man, wasn’t “eliminated”.

    • Swamp investigations found nothing and yet those who were there and those who were told to stand down tell a different story!

    • Are you saying Clinton & Obama didn’t sleep through the night before doing anything about the Benghazi attack? We could have had support there in less than 2 hours instead of the next day. Are you also forgetting that Hil denied aid to that outpost despite multiple warnings of the dangers there by embassy staff that new of the dangers?

  11. Thank God that the take-no-BS Trump is now president and not that gutsy wimp Obama, the world’s biggest liar and the worst and most incompetent and divisive president in history who ran the country into the sewer before Trump transformed it thanks to eliminating most of his pathetic policies.
